Passed peacefully away on September 9, 2020, Ruth Patricia Brett, at the Dr. Hugh Twomey Health Center in Botwood. She was 73 years of age. Mrs. Brett retired from her work as an alternate care giver for Emily and Shirley.
Ruth will be remembered for her loving and giving ways. She cherished her children and grandchildren very much and they have many fond memories of her. Taking trips to Disney World together, catching caplin in Leading Tickles and trips to Alberta just to name a few. She was always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone and to anything that was asked of her. Ruth enjoyed being a member/President of the Anglican Church Women for a number of years and planned many events until her illness prevented her from carrying on. Her friends were many and she made everyone welcome and comfortable in her home. She went above and beyond in everything she did and was second to none.

She leaves to mourn her husband Donald Brett; son Gregory Brett; daughters Karen (Jason) Jones, Allison (Darrell) Rice; sisters Carolyn (Kevin) Lane; grandchildren Jessica, Katelynn, Lauren, Jillian, Matthew and Dylan and a circle of other relatives and friends.
